I went into MAC originally looking to buy one of their new Oh Sweetie glosses, but I didn't get on with the shade I tried. I tried a gold coloured one but it was limited edition so the assistant showed me Spite and Lust. I preferred the look of Spite in the tube so tried it and was really surprised by how much I liked it. My friend liked it on me too as it was natural and didn't wash me out.
The formula isn't too sticky and lasts a decent amount of time for a gloss. I mean it does transfer onto cups when I drink and I have to reapply, but to me that's the nature of a gloss. If I want long lasting, that's when I go for a lipstick.
The coverage is pigmented enough to wear the gloss on its own, and it is quite opaque.

I hadn't purchased a lipglass in a years. So, I popped a mini in Spite in my last order. I don't remember MAC lipglasses to be so thick, or so pasty. I don't remember ever having to work so hard to apply it evenly on my lips. And, I certainly don't remember ever pressing my lips together and it literally sealing my mouth shut. I don't remember it having such a terrible chemical smell to it. I like the shade but this formula is unwearable for me. Returning it.

This is terrible. Makes me look like a zombie. That may be a popular look now, but it just doesn't work for me. Give it two stars because MAC's Lipglass provides the best shine ever.

This is great nude on my NC50 skin. I find less is more with this lipgloss, put a little on your lips, then build it. If you pile it on, you may look like you've eaten a doughnut. Its a little sticky, but I can live with that as the colour is so beautiful. I love wearing this with a light foundation and mascara, great for those days when your in a rush, but want to look human.

This is a little edit. I have to say this is my HG lipglass. I'm on my 3rd tube can't live it without this beautiful colour

I've been wearing "Spite" for over a decade, now. It's a wonderful color for cool or "lukewarm" complexions. I have fair olive skin ("Sand" is my shade in Bobbi Brown makeup,) medium ash brown hair, and hazel eyes. "Spite" gives my lips a wonderful, neutral effect with a wet, creamy finish. It coordinates beautifully with taupe, grey, cool brown, plum, and mauve eye makeup and blushes.

I think "Spite" gets overlooked in favor of Lipglass with greater "eye candy appeal." Shimmery and frosted glosses and less neutral, more vibrant color are more likely to hold a consumer's attention. It's a shame because this creamy finish gloss offers a lot of mileage for the cost. It's a beautiful look worn on a naked face to give one's mouth a little polish and definition. The creamy finish visually "plumps up" smaller lips. It also offers subtle polish in the office with more conservative makeup. For an evening look, dress it up with smudged liner and/or smokey eyes.

Lipglass wears well for the type of product it is. It's a bit "sticky" but feels moist and comfortable on the mouth and leaves a slight stain as it wears off.

I used to love Spite, it was my favorite lipglass for many years..it was actually the first MAC lipglass I ever bought about ten years ago. After I'd finish the container I would always repurchase, but a few years ago, maybe 3 or 4, something changed. I don't know if they changed the formula or what exactly, but the smell changed. The first time I purchased it with the stinky stench I thought I had bought a "bad" one, but when I went to exchange it the MUA gave me another one and it smelled exactly the same. She told me they all smelled like that. I was so disappointed, but I took it anyway. I tried to wear it a few times, but every time I was grossed out by the smell. I eneded up giving it to my niece who didn't mind the smell. Since then, before I even decide to purchase a lip product, I always make sure to smell it before to make sure I'm not put off by the scent.
The only way I would ever buy Spite again, which I do miss, is if the scent changes.

Other reivewers have described this well: Spite is a medium-deep mauvey taupe brown. It has a cream finish with no shimmer or sparkle. This particular formula tends to lose its vanilla scent quickly, but I don't think that it necessarily means its gone bad. A regular application of color shows up true to the tube on me. However, I find the true color a bit too dark/grey/cool with my NC25 skin. But if I sheer it out a little bit (this is a very opaque gloss) and let some of my natural lip color show through, it becomes a more natural lovely mauvey beige shade on me. It darkens my lips just a bit, and its a great color to wear with a plummy brown eye. Its a great shade for fall!

Wow, I think I just found my favorite lipgloss (possibly HG!) I have been looking for a color like this for so long! In the tube it appears to be a greyish brown, but swatched and on my lips it is a gorgeous plummy nude brown color. I love it! It doesn't need to be said that MAC Lipglasses can be a little bit sticky, but I'm willing to put that aside for this one. It's awesome. Every tan & darker skin girl needs this!
